Going back to learning as an adult may seem daunting, but it’s a great step, with so many reasons to do it for yourself and your future.
Progress in your career
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is important to stay up-to-date in your industry/sector, especially if you have a mind to progress. Many employers will be looking for these up-to-date knowledge and skills for higher roles.
Start a new career
It is never too late to start something new. If you want to change career, adult learning is a route to gaining new skills and knowledge, to enter a new role, especially if you want to change industry/sector.
As you study at EKC Folkestone College, you will be guided by our dedicated staff, who can help you every step of the way. From our English and Maths teams to tutors who have years of experience in their dedicated subject areas such as Catering, everyone will be available to give you the support and the guidance that you need.
Learn something new
Adult learning does not have to be for a professional or career-focused reason. You can keep your brain active and learn a new skill or specialism, with our wide range of part-time and short courses in areas such as Catering, Beauty and Early Years.
Meet new people
It can be hard to meet new people outside of your day-to-day routine, so learning in College is a great way to meet like minded people and build new relationships, whether for professional networking or personal friendships.
Increase your confidence
When you invest in yourself and what you want to do, it improves your wellbeing and confidence. There are so many flexible courses available to fit around you, so why not take the chance and see what you can achieve.
Take part in FREE* courses
Some of our adult courses at EKC Folkestone College can be free (*depending on employability status and benefits), meaning that you can get access to a wide range of learning and tools for no cost.
Achieve your personal goals
Some courses have allowed our adult learners to go ahead and achieve things they never felt were possible, such as going to University with our GCSE English and Maths courses.
